WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE: Trailer for the New Studio Ghibli Film from the Director THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY

     July 2, 2014

Studio Ghibli has released the first When Marnie Was There trailer.  Based off the 1981 book by Joan G. Robinson, Marnie tells the story of Anna, a lonely, young girl who meets a strange girl by the name of Marnie.  Just when it seems like their friendship is striking up, Marnie mysteriously disappears, and Anna begins to learn some strange truths about her new friends.  However, none of the plot comes through in the trailer, which contains no dialogue.  Instead, we’re treated to the beautiful animation we’ve come to expect from Studio Ghibli.  The trailer is really quite lovely and moving, and I hope we’ll get to see the film in the U.S. soon.

Hit the jump to check out the When Marnie Was There trailer.  The film opens in Japan on July 19th.  No word yet on a U.S. release.
